My name is Renee Xie, and I am currently a grade 12 student studying in Ontario. I plan to attend Western University for Management and Organization and further pursue studies at the Ivey Business School in third year.
I have always loved art in all forms. Growing up as a dancer, my role models have taught me the importance of creativity, authenticity, and power through expression. My mother is also an art teacher who studied at George Brown University.
I feel as though art has become under appreciated in our generation. We no longer visit art galleries and stare at Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" for hours, as we interpret its meaning.
To me, every piece of art tells a story. I so firmly believe this because I know that every artist has a story to tell. Whether it be through drama, painting, dancing, or poetry, the power that it holds to evoke emotion and thought is astounding.
Each collection is hand picked, and we also feature local artists that want to empower and express.
I hope that through these collections that I have carefully chosen, I can share my love of art to you.
